67km speed, low profile haul, 10 gdp.

28sec reload, 1.5 sec inter clip.

And strong front armor.

This thing is super OP.

"It can be killed" so it can't possibly be op.

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Crappy side armour, weak pen, frontal armour only good in spots. It ain't that good LOL. If any tank needs nerfed its the 430U.

The Machine is only the best light tank in the game, and by a large margin.  Why would anyone want to nerf it?

So you’re not literally asking for a giant hammer made by Nerf to be mounted on it?

Sorry I misunderstood.

 

ps: was just kidding by the way

Low profile hull? The Machine is a very tall tank with an absolutely massive side profile.

 

As for the tank itself, it's only OP in a good player's hands, but its weaknesses make it worse in mediocre and bad player's hands than most other tier X tanks. Sure, it's a very fast tank with solid frontal armor and a very quick to unload autoloading gun, but it also has fairly poor acceleration and traverse speeds (by medium standards at least), its gun has mediocre DPM and poor pen, and its frontal armor has a ton of weak points (and its side and rear armor are overmatched by nearly every gun the Machine can run into).

Gun handling,  mobility, good armor.

Dont tell me its side armor is week. Which tank has good side armor with this kind of mobility?

Even reverse speed is super fast.

Will be nerfed for sure.

If TVP got nerfed like as is, The Machine needs a harder nerf for sure.

Considering what it takes to get it, it should be buffed. Not even close to OP but it should be.

Honestly, the original pre-nerf TVP was probably an even better tank than the Machine is currently, as what it lacked in armor and top speed it made up for with its significantly better acceleration/mobility, smaller profile, side armor that wasn't overmatched by everything, faster reload, and a few other less significant stats that were better as well (like view range). Not only that, but the TVP was nerfed far too hard as well, so it really doesn't support your argument for the Machine needing a nerf.

That "weak power plate" is around 270 effective Armour. Some of the superheavies which their weakspots were that "weak."

 

It has a buffed IS7 engine, a buffed TVP gun, a chieftain turret but with one of the Chieftain turret weakspots protected by a gun mantle, 50b hull, is crazy fast (it keeps pace with bat chats and other mediums no problem) and is decently agile.

Easy fix to the machine, drop the top speed to 50. Done.

Who is having problems penning a Machine??? Aiming helps with damaging the Machine. Quit depending on auto lock
